This time of year, homeowners begin looking for ways to make their homes warmer and more comfortable, while lowering their home-heating bills. A new heating stoves or fireplace insert might be just what your home needs! A heating stove allows you to put heat right where you need it; you can install a heating stove in your home’s main living space and turn down the thermostat for the rest of the home. A fireplace insert, meanwhile, can take an existing inefficient fireplace and turn it into a valuable asset when it comes to heating your home.

At Tri-County Hearth & Patio, we look to provide home-heating solutions to homeowners here in southern Maryland. That’s why we offer a variety of woodstoves, heating stoves and fireplace inserts to help you make your home more comfortable during the cold winter months and lower your home’s heating bills. We carry hearth appliances in all fuel types so you can find the home-heating option that works best for your hearth.

Woodstoves and wood-burning fireplace inserts
Wood often has a bad reputation for being an inefficient and labor-intensive heat source. Our woodstoves and wood-burning fireplace inserts defy this reputation. Modern EPA-certified woodstoves and fireplace inserts turn wood into an efficient source of heat, and when wood-burning hearth appliances work efficiently, you have to feed and tend your fire far less. With a new woodstove or fireplace insert, you can warm your home in a cost-effective way.

Pellet stoves and pellet-burning inserts
Pellet stoves have become an increasingly popular choice for hearth appliances, and it’s easy to see why: Pellets are an inexpensive, efficient and environmentally friendly source of heat. Pellets are made from dehydrated, compressed wood waste. They burn hot and efficiently, and provide plenty of heat with the classic look of a wood-burning stove or fireplace. Pellet stoves are also low-maintenance. Pellets are loaded into a hopper and an electric auger automatically feeds pellets into the fireplace or stove. With a pellet stove, you can maintain a constant, warmer temperature into your home even when you’re sleeping or away from home.

Gas stoves and gas fireplace inserts
Gas fireplaces and heating stoves are ideal for people who want additional heat and the comforting glow of a fireplace without the work. Gas fireplaces and heating stoves provide heat when and where you want it with the push of a button, and they can be wired to a thermostat to maintain a constant temperature in your home. And with direct-vent and ventless models available, gas stoves and fireplace inserts can be installed nearly anywhere in your home.

Electric stoves and electric fireplace inserts
Electric stoves and fireplace inserts are one of the easiest ways to add heat to your home. They require only an adequate outlet, so they can be installed anywhere you have space, and most models can be moved around the home to meet your needs. Electric fireplaces and stoves also can be built into a wall or hearth to give them a more traditional, permanent look.
